Pilot Project Program (PPP)

A major goal of the UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS) is to accelerate the translation    of basic discoveries into practical, cost effective solutions that improve human health. The intent of the Pilot Project Program (PPP) is to speed up the rate of progress to move a research project, clinical finding or other discovery into a broader network of activities, while maximizing the breadth of transdisciplinary skills applied to the research question. We are particularly interested in proposals which feature a clinical scientist working with a basic scientist, proposals with an emphasis on community-based research, and proposals that support the career development of new investigators. 

NOTE: It's time to apply for Spring 2024!
